Shots Fired: Azealia Banks Calls Out Nicki Minaj Over Miley Cyrus Drama

Published: Wednesday 7th Oct 2015 by Sam

Pop culture’s resident commentator Azealia Banks is back at it.

This time, the ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ rapper is sounding off on rival Nicki Minaj.

Earlier today, the ‘Anaconda’ femcee set the ‘net ablaze when her comments about Miley Cyrus were published in a new interview with the New York Times Magazine.

As reported, Minaj elaborated on her gripe with the singer, who took aim at the Young Money star’s claims of institutionalised racism.

For Banks, though, Onika’s comments do not wash with her.

Find out what she had to say below…

      • What now October 7, 2015


    • Cupid October 7, 2015

    • You tried ??????!? October 7, 2015

      So ????????????????????????????! She said exactly what I’ve been saying for sooooooo long!!!!!!

  2. Girl Hush October 7, 2015

    Can Banks even chart? She’s always running her mouth and using race to justify her bigotry, homophobia and nonsense.

    • RihNaj October 7, 2015

      This biitch just want attention don’t give it to her nicki, let the attention seeking ho get a life somewhere else!

    • RIHANNA>beyonce October 7, 2015

      Niki can’t chart either. Flopping myself made no impact. Flop dem gurls, the flop print. Oh before you come for Rihanna…Ffs went double platinum and Bbhmm went platinum and still selling.

    • You tried ??????!? October 7, 2015

      Mute yourself please ! What does charting have to with being REAL! U KIDS are so lost and destroyed mentally by the dumb basket cases that u call ur fav! Lol smh

      • Faf October 7, 2015

        Sis Rihanna don’t even have an album let alone a song she wrote chart

        She’s selling for her writers


      • igotstatellithowiseeit October 7, 2015

        Faf, what’s your point? She is a singer, so she sings. Songwriters write songs for singers. Singer-songwriters normally writer songs for themselves, but can pass a song or two to another singer. Rihanna is doing what she is supposed to do, sing.

  3. ChakaYonce October 7, 2015

    Is she lying? No. Nicki had nothing to say when the industry tried to replace her with Nicki. Why speak now?

    • Faf October 7, 2015

      • Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

  6. Keri Qween October 7, 2015

    “You were once a skinny woman”. Lmaooo drag her ms. Banks! This plastic b**** has some nerve talking about skinny women and the bias over “curvy women”. B**** them curves were bought sit the f*** down

    • Ciah’s Turtle October 7, 2015

    • Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

  10. Dee October 7, 2015

    Preach Azelia… Females be lying nowadays@ Nicki Minaj????????????????????????

  11. When Rihsus Says Yes… October 7, 2015

    Azaelia scalped Nicki’s bleached head with those tweets. #TeamAzaelia

  12. When Rihsus Says Yes… October 7, 2015

    Azaelia Banks should give up rap music and be a social commentator. That’s no shade because I love how she speaks her mind, even the dumb ish.

  13. LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES October 7, 2015

    People will feel so stupid when the Queen Bee Lil’ Kim returns to show you who the real Queen of Rap is. Nicki is washed… SPLISH SPLASH!

    • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 7, 2015

  14. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) October 7, 2015

    Azealia is spot on.

  15. StrawberryMuffin24 October 7, 2015

    Banks should give up rap cause the bitter bish will never Happen in the U.S.

    Nicki should just be quiet she’s making herself look a fool!

    • Taylor Tart October 7, 2015

      I agree with you…..

  16. Barb-wire October 7, 2015

    Gurl, this flop b**** done tried Nicki… Like she wants Nicki’s attention so bad, she’s been yapping about her on Social media for quite a while now. Giving me Kiah Teas tbh…

  17. Barb-wire October 7, 2015

    Channel that anger towards your mixtapes Sis, stop worrying about a person who’s paying your flop ass dust.

    • Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

      She can’t.. stuck in her deal until march 2016. that’s why she tight

  18. Taylor Tart October 7, 2015

    Kiah and this b**** ……. Oh and that other unknown b**** who called Kim kardashian out need to just die/be killed……. I can’t with these basic but talented hoees,,,, they only have something to say than sing/rap…..

  19. #TeamTinashe Stan October 7, 2015

    If she stuck to exposing Nicki On twitter I would of stayed a fan but I still commend her for being the most bravest artist in Hip Hop in a long time. She may say things controversial but atleast she isn’t afraid in this apologetic new era. Drag that bih tho!

  20. Lmfao_Hoe October 7, 2015

    For once I’m behind her a hundred percent on this. Nicki shouldn’t be crying wolf and being shady after all the bs she’s done too. She’s talking about woman of color yet hasn’t reached back or out to help put another black sister on. And please don’t get me with that well she doesn’t owe anyone anything, cuz vice versa could be said too. Nicki didn’t make the Kim situation any better, in fact I see now where Kim was coming from afterall. Nicki hasn’t acknowledge or shown support behind Tink, DE Loaf, Snow, Azealia, and Angela Haze. Why because “She wants to be the only female artist out” – Lil Kim

    • Taylor Tart October 7, 2015

      Isn’t Dej Loaf touring with her???

      • Lmfao_Hoe October 7, 2015

        No you bye, why they haven’t collaborated? Why hasn’t she reached out to Tink, Angel Haze, and Snow the Product? Cause each one of them would kill Nicki on any song/beat. You better check theses girls, cause truth of the matter is if Nicki was in the times of Kim, Foxy, Eve, Missy, Lauryn, Queen L., MC Lyte, Left Eye, Da Brat, and Ect other females should wouldn’t stand a damn chance. She’s truly blessed cause each one of the ladies I mentioned are all legends not in their prime anymore. But if right machine and creative control of their music will overthrown her.

      • Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

        lmao exactly. that B**** is dumb as hell

      • Ion October 7, 2015

        Dej Loaf carries herself like “one of the boys” with her baggy clothes and androgynous attire. Nicki is cool with her being on tour with her because Nicki does not see her as a threat and Nicki is still the only one free to display her s** kitten bare naked ass on front street on stage for men to lust over.

        Let’s be real here.

    • Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

      She don’t have to reach out to none of those b!tches. Her job is to make music, provide for her family, and give back to the community. Has it occurred to you that maybe she hasn’t even heard their music? And secondly, you sound stupid. She put Dej Loaf on her tour.

  21. Taylor Tart October 7, 2015

    Today is a fast news day….. What I love about it there was no Tranet post……..

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) October 7, 2015

      We know @Molly. Too much of a reminder of how much of a flop your fave is.

      Stfu, she still on your mind bittch. Remain bothered..

  22. Cough Cough October 7, 2015

    Nicki: b**** Miley what’s good

    Miley: Congrats Nicki. ANY F***IN WAY ****head bop with a ponytail tug**** the nominees are!

    • Kitty October 7, 2015

      that’s all the square body b**** better have said, you can tell she was scared and was stuttering on her words. *sips tea*

      • Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

        Ok! looking to the left to make sure a b**** wasn’t comin lmao

  23. Taylor Tart October 7, 2015

    She’s a waste of s**** and Talent

    • Taylor Tart October 7, 2015

      This blog:|…….. Speerm

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) October 7, 2015

        Your parents thought the same of you which is why they threw your fat, ugly, trampy ass, out on the streets..

        Your poor momma cries herself to sleep thinking ‘if only I swallowed that load, that little bittch wouldn’t be here’…

  24. Cough Cough October 7, 2015

    I do think it’s mad corny that Nicki constantly calls out skinny girls etc what the f*** when she is a skinny girl minus all her fake implants. U never see Naomi Campbell calling out bald headed girls just cause she has on a wig.

  25. Queen Molly October 7, 2015

    Funny how the barbz hate her so much now but y’all was prasing her when she dragged iggz… I love seeing the tables turn ki

  26. cocobutta October 7, 2015

    If it wasn’t just for publicity due a career of wasting talent then would actually say this is the realness.

    She a blogger heifer.

    He voice Azealia thoughts was lost after she was white this and white that but was seem around dating one.

  27. Kitty October 7, 2015

    Not this ugly rat face burnt b**** talking about enhancements when she just got her boobs done… let me fire her twitter up real quick

  28. It’s Barbie B**** October 7, 2015

    at the end of the day Nicki went home with a moon man after the Vma’s, what does this low life b**** have besides twitter? she’s the typical angry black woman hating on another black woman, the media is making a complete fool of her and she playing right into it.

  29. Mizz Sue October 7, 2015

    Nicki and the music industry will continue to pay this racist hack dust. she’s dissed her own community now she wants to be a black rights activist, i can’t with her hypocrisy.

  30. TrinaAllDay October 7, 2015

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) October 7, 2015

        At least Cheryl makes it look good on stage, and doesn’t look like she is having convulsions..

  38. Naomi’sEdges October 7, 2015

  40. OMG Logic!!! October 7, 2015

    I don’t care the Banks was right for the first time in her life. I still think she’s a bitter ass b1tch who’s only coming for Onika’s flop a55 because she managed to gain some success.

  41. October 8, 2015

    this chick attacks everyone she as nothing to lose anyways,so she is free to say whatever.

  42. GEEZUS95 October 10, 2015

    I love how everybody hates NICKI but always ACKNOWLEDGE her power. Ya’ll know she’s the sh*t. That’s why ya want her to reach out to your dead fav’s. But Nope, not gone happen. Not until she’s really established. That’s why she’s not promoting her label. Her words.
